Winning Monday

Monday, January 25, 2010

Well the weekend went by like a blur, thanks to me working on Saturday. I still got some things done and I made it to a church service, my main goal. I still have to drive home next Saturday to meet with my realtor (can't delay getting my house on the market). I can see the floor of the closet, unpacked a bit, did my hair, got rid of some of the clutter.

Moving makes you purge a lot of things. I see that I have a lot of unnecessary stuff and I have no problem downsizing now. I jumped on that bandwagon emoticon I didn't plan my meals too great this weekend, but I am backed on track and still drinking my water, staying away from trigger foods and now this week I will add a new healthy recipe. What, I do not know right now, but I will look through Spark recipe files and my own recipe books.

I choose to make this Monday a winning Monday. I choose to do my best job, let my Christ light shine and continue to give God the Glory

Free Will

Sunday, January 24, 2010

I visited a new church today. Everyone was warm and welcoming and I will visit again. The sermon today discussed how God gave us free will. I related to my weight loss journey. I have free will to eat the cheeseburger or stay on course and follow my diet plan. I have the free will to gobble up the reece peanut butter cups or bypass them for an apple instead. The choice is mine, I can get over it now and not make food the event or suffer health related consequences later. Not wanting to be another statistic, I am making better food choices, learning my triggers and counteracting them. Today's counteraction was to unpack more boxes, straighten my closets, wash clothes and prepare for the work week. Mission accomplished and I did it without the peanut butter cup! emoticon

Work it Saturday

Saturday, January 23, 2010

I was given rare overtime opportunity to work this Saturday so I am taking advantage of it. It is rare and the extra dollars in my check next week will be very helpful in paying down my debt. That is the goal and plan for 2010, to pay off and eliminate debt, not just manage it and by the grace of God, I will do it. emoticon

I am keeping my focus on my spark streaks, looking at different physical activities-something I have never done. So far I am signed up to do a 5k race locally in April, I am also going to check out Belly Dancing and Bikram Yoga classes taught here locally as well. My journey to become a well rounded woman is underway and I am doing possibility thinking!

So here is working it Saturday and to God be the Glory!

Feeling it Friday

Friday, January 22, 2010

Moving forward on positive thinking, I think I will add that to my spark streaks. I am making sure I get at least seven hours of sleep (a first for me) consistently. I am tracking my food portions, getting my water in and focusing on the positive and keeping negative thoughts at bay emoticon

I was given overtime opportunity this weekend, so it changes my Saturday plans. I still will unpack and straighten up here, I realized what a big difference that makes. Putting my touches of home out made me feel a little grounded. I am not 100% there yet, but I am on my way. I am also looking forward to attending a new church service this Sunday. I am use to fellowshipping on a weekly basis and I miss my churches in Michigan and Missouri. I was able to download my Bishop from Michigan New Year Eve message, it was powerful. I spent New Year's Eve here in Missouri at a church I visited with my girlfriend. I am looking for a new local church home to continue to honor God right here in my new humble abode. emoticon

So I am feeling it Friday, thanking the Good Lord for it being pay day and having an opportunity to have extra hours in my check next week. To God be the Glory emoticon

Looking forward Thursday

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Well I shook that bluesy, funky feeling off of me. I took my vitamins, stretched my muscles and went to work with a new attitude yesterday. It helped. I will continue with forward thinking, making the best and choosing positive over negative.

I broke down one box, set up my small little library and displayed pictures of my Mom and family. I haven't hung any on the wall yet, but that is coming. I am breaking my weekend down, by cleaning my house and meeting with the realtor on Saturday and returning to KC to attend a new church service, unpack one more box and maybe it time allows squeeze in a much needed pedicure. I am looking at taking a class during the morning at my new gym and I also looked up bikram yoga, something I may want to incorporate new in 2010 for me.

I realize I didn't eat enough yesterday and that is not going to cut it. Instead of relying on my memory, I pulled out my training journal to log in my meals and training. I tend to remember to write more than to log in on the food tracker because I do not always have access to the internet.

Making positive, step by step changes one day at a time. emoticon To God be the Glory emoticon

    I'm so glad you are having a better day today. Take your time and get your home away from home in order. Make time for Kelly and do get your proper rest and nutrition. I'm praying you will be able to attend church this Sunday.
